The Creators
Short film, 4 min, 2023
A group of creatures are researching and creating a world. It encourages the question why the world is ordered in the way that it is. And that creating something can be terribly hard work, even for the Creators.
Director    Madeleine Homan

Sound Designer   Kai McClymont

Composer   Tom Redburn

Animators   Madeleine Homan, Anya Butcher, Jess Jolliffe, Francisco Alvarez Simavilla (Paco)

'Short, Sharp, Simple & To The Point. Madeleine Homan nails the perfect SSS&TTP intro when her lead character arrives for work, ready to get down to business in her new film The Creators. There is more to pulling off these no-nonsense, micro-burst moments of essential action than meets the eye. It’s a blink-and-you-miss-it moment of virtuosity comprising a single sound effect, five lines and a sublimely executed piece of minimalist animation. It’s a three second masterclass in the art of character intro which should be taught to all animation students.'
